Thomas Hobbs

Midterm Review for Thomas Hobbs POLS 2300 University of Utah

State of Nature Synonymous with the state of war Charactarized by continual fear "Nasty, Brutish, and Short" All Equally Vulnerable
What Rights exist in the State of Nature? Only the right to self-preservation
3 causes of conflict 1. Competition 2. Diffidence 3. Glory
What Political Ideology is Hobbs? Liberalist/ Contractualist
Social Contract We lay down our weapons and accept the logic of reciprical rights.
The Sovereign 1. Has absolute power 2. Is above civil law 3. Derives its legitimacy through the 'consent' of its people
What Can the Leviathan NOT do? Government becomes illegitimate when it threatens your physical body without your direct consent.
